Outgoing, Curious, Affectionate

Dawnie gives off the tough-guy vibe, and while he could have stayed an outdoor stray, he instead decided to charm his way into living the cushy indoor cat lifestyle! He is as affectionate as can be, and truly loves to be social and outgoing with his people. We're surprised he waited so long to convince someone to bring him inside!

Dawnie has the kind of personality that can take over the room. He draws in attention, and is not upset about that one bit! He enjoys getting any and all types of attention, and confidently approaches his humans for pets and scritches. Dawnie has got big purrs to back up his big personality! He enjoys getting in the counselors' way onsite at Tarrytown while they attempt to tidy up the room, and eagerly cuddles up when they finally take a break to sit down with him.

Being in a room with other cats has been hit or miss for Dawnie. He has the potential to live amicably with another independent cat, but would prefer a slow introduction, or could happily be the king of the household and soak up all of the attention! For now he is great at creating space when he needs it, and will take time for himself if he is not in the most social mood.

Overall, Dawnie has been interested in meeting almost everyone, and has been seeking out interaction. He could thrive in a space with both places for him to hang out and be social, and somewhere tucked away for him to decompress if he gets overwhelmed or overstimulated - since he is still adjusting to be a fully indoor and spoiled cat!

If this sweet buff boy has stolen your heart, contact APA! today to meet Dawnie and adopt him ASAP!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
